Hooked on E!

  8 months ago

Okay, I’m going to tackle a controversial subject. E-bikes. More specifically, pedal-assist bikes. About three years ago while visiting Austria a group of fit roadies invited me on an Alpine road ride. I declined without hesitation. Not because I didn’t like road riding and not because I didn’t have any Lycra shorts. I declined because…

Goals for life, vehicles to take you there

  8 months ago

As a young person, I was never very goal orientated. I was pretty happy to cruise along, never trying massively hard to achieve much. I found I really struggled to make proper friends at school, and I was bad at sports. I was rubbish to be honest, and extremely rotund, which gave me very little…

Die Opstel Van Doelwitte

  8 months ago

Iets wat my al lank pla is hierdie “well done” en “so proud of you”, veral op sosiale media as ons fietsryers iewers deelneem. Indien ek waag om iets te vra oor die performance is daar sommer groot moeilikheid. En as ek waag om voor die tyd te comment, hoop jy finish, word daar gevra…

Talk About An Emotional Roller Coaster

  8 months ago

I sit here writing with a heart that is completely torn.  It is both excited and at the same time hurting.  As in all typical relationships my head is wanting to take over (which is probably sensible) but my heart is still winning.  I’ll try explain:  I am back in the front seat of Full…

Why do you ride?

  8 months ago

This year is fast approaching its end and I have to wonder what do I have to show for it? Fearing that I might not like the answer I find myself quickly hopping to the next thought. When I finally force myself to think about this, the truth is I have a lot to show….

The Downhill World Champs Experience

  8 months ago

The best week of the year for me is usually World Champs each year as it brings together the cross-country and downhill riders which is a lot of fun. In 2016 it changed a bit due to it being an Olympic year so it was a standalone downhill Worlds but it was still an awesome…

Indoor trainers – Which is best?

  8 months ago

In this issue Dr Mike Posthumus reviews the Tacx Neo and the Wahoo KICKR in a head to head battle. As many of my closer friend and colleagues may know, I am a great proponent of indoor training. Yes, it is not as stimulating as riding outside, but when time is a limiting factor, you…
